Labor MK Eitan Cabel Monday morning told Israel Radio that the Labor party has drifted from its core values in the past two years and needs to reflect and regroup following Defense Minister Ehud Barak's announcement Monday that he and four other Labor MKs will be forming a new Knesset faction.
Specifically, Cabel said that regarding the peace process and social issues, the Labor party has lost its way. He added that he thinks it is very important to strengthen all of the parties to the left of Kadima.
Cable said that the Labor MKs remaining in the party would be meeting in order to decide upon a path. He said that they need to "restore their house" to its basic principles.
